Stella Luce
Stella Luce
Stella Luce is a quirky blend of indie-rock, ethnic strings, and electronic experimentation featuring Fort Collins indie music scene veterans Alana Rolfe (viola, vocals), Brett Schreiber (bass, electronics), Tim Massa (guitar) and Sean Speer (drums).
Musketeer Gripweed
Musketeer Gripweed
The Fort Collins-based, blues-fusion band Musketeer Gripweed simply explodes onstage with the energy and fervor of a revival preacher out to save a filthy sinner's soul. This group of highly accomplished musicians, however, isn't about pushing religion – unless your religion is drinking, dancing and some damn good music – they're about creating "American revival, stomp, shake and holla" music. With a passion influenced by modern and classic rock 'n' soul heroes, Musketeer Gripweed creates an extraordinarily powerful live energy, and the band's "gasoline intense vibe" manifests in spontaneous, uncontrollable dancing and a compulsion to stand up, run to the stage and testify.

With their relentless work ethic and love for music iZCALLi will continue to build on its roots and make a mark in the history of rock.
Strange Americans
Strange Americans
It's the kind of music that the Carhartt-wearing, hard-working, industrial beer-drinking, regular Americans would listen to — the ones who could end up on an episode of TV's Dirty Jobs. In a sense, Strange Americans are rescuing something from the rust pile — straight-forward, no frills rock and roll, and a matching aesthetic that is heavy on songwriting and storytelling, but presented with reverb-drenched punch and passion — the way The Band or Crazy Horse would have done it.
Maxwell Mud
Maxwell Mud
Drawing inspiration from Rock and Roll and Blues music, Maxwell Mud delivers a sound as American as the Ford Mustang. A trio of seasoned musicians from the Midwest, this rock and roll powerhouse produces a rich, high-energy sound to go along with their a sharp-dressed image. They are quickly gaining acclaim for their unrelenting Rock and Roll and classic style and are catching the attention of Rock and Roll purists everywhere.
The Gremlins
The Gremlins
The Gremlins are a trio of accomplished teen musicians who originally got together to be in their elementary school talent show. With roots in rock, funk, alternative, and punk, they bring a mix of genres to the stage and their original music. They have played around town at many different venues and were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to play at Bohemian Nights at New West Fest in 2015.
